SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – After some busy debut weekends, MGM Springfield is reminding its customers about the rules when it comes to minors at the casino.
People under the age of 21 are restricted by law from being in the gaming area.
MGM Springfield spokesman Saverio Mancini told 22News children may not wait just outside the gaming area while adults play.
“While on property, parents must comply with Massachusetts law by making every effort to avoid taking children into the gaming area of the casino,” Saverio said. “At MGM Springfield, public pathways outside the gaming area are clearly defined by tile flooring. But even on tile flooring, there is no loitering. All minors must be actively moving along the path.”
Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult on resort property, at all times.
Saverio told 22News children are always welcome to visit MGM Springfield with their parents or other adults to attend an event on The Plaza, go to the movies, enjoy a meal, or visit their public art and history displays.
No children and minors under the age of 21 are allowed on resort property between the hours of 12:00 a.m. midnight to 8:00 a.m., seven days a week. Exceptions to this policy would be hotel guests with a room key and Regal Cinemas visitors with a valid ticket stub.
Saverio said it is MGM Springfield’s policy to check IDs of anyone who appears to be under the age of 30 and is seeking to consume alcohol or enter the gaming floor.
He told 22News they are installing additional signage to reinforce all the resort’s policies.
